The Wyoming State Legislature's Joint Appropriations Committee is meeting in Cheyenne Thursday and Friday to discuss a number of issues that include employee group insurance and the state's retirement system. Sheridan Media's Ron Richter has more.
The Appropriations Committee will start today off with discussion on potential changes to the state employees' group health insurance program.
That's Representative Rosie Berger, who's also the Chair of the JAC. Berger says that the afternoon session will primarily focus on preference laws for in-state contractors, which is a law that the legislature has been trying to adjust for the past several years.
Berger says that the Appropriations Committee will review the one year pilot project that made temporary changes to the preference laws.
On Friday, the JAC will receive on update on the Wyoming Retirement System from Director Thom Williams. Join us Friday, where we'll take a more in depth look at the state of the retirement system in Wyoming.
